  Accelerator science has a constant demand requiring improved electron beam quality for both scientific and industrial applications. Examples of parameters on existing systems that affect overall beam quality include: vacuum stability, component level alignment, RF phase matching, electron injection parameters, etc. A proper beam commissioning process allows the characterization of initial parameters that tune system setup appropriately in order to improve net beam quality and becomes a valuable source of data to guide system operation. Here we will discuss methods and possible obstacles during the commissioning process of accelerator systems experienced at RadiaBeam. This includes a description of the diagnostic equipment that may be used to commission a beam line such as: current transformers, faraday cups, profile monitors and pyro detectors. The interpretation of raw data from the diagnostics in terms of usefulness for further adjustments and improvements on the beam line as shown in current work. Simulations and empirical comparisons are also presented as examples for commissioning procedures within the aspect of expectations and actual results.
